THE B. C. CATHOLIC
Five religious, political, and ecological leaders gathered at a summit in Vancouver to discuss climate change and poverty. It was in response to the latest papal encyclical, which concerned the planet and the poor, Laudato Si', and the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Paris. "One of the major points of the Pope is that the concern for ecology and the concern for justice are necessarily, and not accidentally, connected," said Archbishop Michael Miller.
